Trillectro Festival is making its grand return in 2018 and has announced a star-studded lineup featuring festival queen SZA, 2 Chainz and RL Grime as the headliners. Originally a Washington, D.C.-based music festival founded in 2012, Trillectro will take over Merriweather Post Pavillion in Columbia, MD for the second year running. The annual single-day outdoor gathering featuring hip-hop, electronic, R&B and indie rock acts and renowned for showcasing up-and-coming musicians on the brink of their big break.
Young Thug, Playboi Carti, The Internet, Rico Nasty, Carnage, Smokepurpp and more will also hit the stage on September 22. Trillectro also recruited local DMV acts, including Innnanet James, Good Intent and Beau Young Prince.
Organized by DC to BC, a music-marketing group started by three area natives, Trillectro is recognized as the area’s first hip-hop and electronic music festival. The name Trillectro, a portmanteau of “trill” (meaning “authentic” in hip-hop circles) and “electro” (short for “electronic”), embodies the festival’s credo of bridging the gap between music genres. Beyond music, the festival is also known as a showcase for local talent, including artists, vendors and small businesses.
